Set: 2000 Topps Chrome (Rate)

Card: #127 Richard Hidalgo

“ Topps has come a long way with chrome. Its gone from this to the modern sets, which I believe to be much better. ” -DarkSide830

“ This card may represent the only occurrence of "Hidalgo" and "star-in-the-making" in the same sentence. ” -dilemma19

“ The back is the best part of this card. I'm sorry I have never been a huge Chrome fan. Moving on to the front the only thing I can read with any kind of ease is Mr. Hidalgo's name. I can almost read the Topps Chrome logo and is that a team logo on the bottom? Astros? ” -captkirk42

“ I like this set. Nice front of card that is not too complicated. Back of the card also has a simple design but has useful information and stats. They didn't overthink it. ” -Mitch

“ Maybe it's just the scan, but this seems pretty dull. More like some sort of pre-production test lacking detail. ” -jlamberth

“ Gotta love how you can see the dust on the scanner with chrome cards. ” -carthage44

“ It's Topps! It's Chrome! It's Fun! ” -Kaline6

“ i like this set. I really like the backs. ” -switzr1

Set: 2002 Fleer Maximum (Rate)

Card: #44 Keenan McCardell

“ I do like the team theme colors of this set. I do not like the missing stats. ” -SFC Temple

“ OK design except for the foil printing. Name should be larger and NOT foiled. The name oriented to the horizontal not the vertical would help. Back is OK but a short bio would fill up the extra space some. ” -captkirk42

“ The design leaves much to be desired but the player was a good one for many years. ” -carthage44

“ Not sure why that football player is blocking my view of the bright yellow extension cord. Can't stop looking at the cord.... About Keenan McCardell: The name sounds familiar, but I would have liked to read something interesting about him on the back of his card. Instead, I get abbreviated stats and several logo shields. Too bad. ” -dilemma19

“ Maximum? Yes, maximum border equals minimum interest. ” -C2Cigars

“ Not digging that front ” -DarkSide830

“ Good looking set. I like colorful borders where they aren't all the same color. ” -switzr1

“ This is a card with a lot of teal space, if you are into that than this is a card for you. ” -UKboogie

Set: 1979 Topps (Rate)

Card: #154 Brian Baschnagel

“ I hate 1970s Topps football because they only had the contract for the players, and not the teams. Thus, they could not show emblems. Fleer owned the rights to the team emblems. So annoying. ” -cjjt

“ 19 different schools? I thought I got moved around a lot. I didn't attend the same school for consecutive full years until 6th & 7th grades. But 19 is crazy! Oh yeah, I like the card too. ” -switzr1

“ Classic Topps. Been collecting Topps FB since 1969, what am I going to collect in 2016? ” -Kaline6

“ I had some of these back in the day. Back when people heard you collected cards and would hand you whatever they found. I had FB, hockey, E.T., and probably others and sold most of them to classmates. Don't remember this particular player - at all. ” -vrooomed

“ love the vintage.. plus he's got the Darth Vader look going ” -tonym

“ You can't spell Baschnagel without B-A-G-E-L. Actually, despite starting with five of the letters (in the correct order), I still have problems spelling Baschnagel. 3 years into his NFL career, and I see that young Brian was already digging deep for "fun facts" card-back material... ” -dilemma19

“ This is the set that started my affliction. I'm not sure how I wound up with them; parents picked them up at a garage sale I suppose. I would sit for hours, just flipping through them, reading the stats and narratives. I didn't really know what it all meant, but I loved em. ” -SFC Temple

“ Love this set! Brings back lots of memories of my love of NFL football in my youth and my love of trading card collecting! ” -bkklaos

“ Cool Vintage/semi-vintage Football. I know next to nothing about this guy. I do like the cards with the airbrushed helmets. As a kid I didn't know the reason for them being like that I just thought is was because all the photos for cards were taken pre-season and they were practice helmets since they didn't bother to put the logo stickers on them. Ha it was because of weird copyright laws/rules. Yet back then they could use the team nicknames. Today no license no logos OR names. ” -captkirk42

“ TIGHT!!! ” -carthage44

“ I like the card. Even though he was on Injured Reserve the entire 1985 season he still got a Super Bowl ring. ” -C2Cigars

“ I sorta like the to-the-point design. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 1996-97 Metal Universe (Rate)

Card: #184 Jamie Langenbrunner

“ Interesting that this design was used in 1996-97 for hockey, it was used for 1997-98 for the NBA. It's one of the more quirky and bizarre concepts, and it looks great in hand. In scans not so much due to being totally etched foil aside from the picture. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Negative. Don't like the Metal sets. Next. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a bad set, still a bit busy on the front. I don't like the gold ribbon looks like he's getting attacked by a snake. Langenbrunner was a great player , even better in the playoffs with two Stanley Cups to prove it. ” -uncaian

“ Should I be able to read that front? Can't say I like the back any more than the front. ” -DarkSide830

“ I though these metal cards were cool when I was young. Now I hate them! ” -carthage44

Set: 1996 FPG Janny Wurts (Rate)

Card: #14 Taken To Task

“ Pretty cool fantasy art NON-Sports card. ” -captkirk42

“ Awesome art! I love it! I'll have to look for this set! ” -bkklaos

“ I had no idea dragons could read! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Are these Dungeons and Dragons? If not, I have no clue what this is. ” -carthage44

“ I have no idea what this is. I just know it makes me nauseous. ” -C2Cigars

Set: 2000 SkyBox (Rate)

Card: #25 Donovan McNabb

“ I wonder why this set was called Skybox in football and I think baseball, but the NBA set was called "Fleer Premium"? I prefer Skybox personally, although for some reason I have never really cared much for this design. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Good looking set, although it really looks like an Upper Deck design to me, not a Skybox design. ” -switzr1

“ An OK card design, except for the dang gold leaf border/lettering. It is easier to read than some but still that "junk years" mentality of foil lettering, ” -captkirk42

“ This is probably tough to scan. It looks really cool. ” -wax_house

“ A solid QB that never could get a ring. Still rooted for him since he was a local guy. ” -carthage44

Set: 1998 Ultra - Rush Hour (Rate)

Card: #14RH Andre Wadsworth

“ This running back was FAST. I know this because the card is all blurry. ” -ketchupman36

“ Yes. Our leisure activities should be designed to remind us of the most despised intervals of our work day. ” -dilemma19

“ This card does nothing for me. ” -captkirk42

“ I'm not fond of the blurry background on both sides.I also find the text hard to read. I do like the overall card design other than these issues. ” -Mitch

“ Much like sitting in traffic, looking at this card makes me irritated and anxious. It looks like Wadsworth is crashing into an Impressionist painting. ” -jlamberth

“ The only thing that is fast about this guy is how quickly he was out of the league. ” -carthage44

“ This is one boring, bleh, card. ” -DarkSide830

Set: 1991 Impel G.I. Joe (Rate)

Card: #96 In from the Cold

“ Although I had my first comic read to me at 5 days old, the GI Joe series was the first I read as an actual series- not just random issues. Although I no longer collect the action figures, I do still collect the comic- the series that started in 1982 ended in 1994, and then came back in 2009 or 2010, with the same numbering and storylines and even the same writer. This was the either the second or third card set I ever completed, probably third, but unfortunately I didn't start keeping records until 1998. GI Joe has played a huge role in my life since 1990, and still plays a role, albeit smaller, to this very day. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I dont' see the appeal, but I'll say it's a pretty good looking card. "Armed conflict" was a prominent theme in 1991. ” -dilemma19

“ Oh Wow an old Impel card. Talk about your flashbacks. Nice card all around, back reminds me of the bio cards that are on the backs of the figures package. That must be the idea. I think this was when Impel was still a MD based company. I was really excited for them at the time since I am a Marylander. ” -captkirk42

“ I bought the first few issues of this comic series when it came out. Haven't picked up any G.I. Joe cards. ” -armac

“ My boys collected these. Still have some unopened packs here. They took this direction along with comic books so I am stuck with the sportscards. Good memories. ” -NJDevils

“ One of my favorite cartoons growing up. ” -carthage44

“ A combination of my 2 favorite hobbies. The 86 set has the original JOE art which, IMHO, is near perfection. ” -SFC Temple

Set: 1997 Fleer Goudey (Rate)

Card: #69 Junior Seau

“ Weird when Frank H. Fleer is printed larger than Junior Seau. ” -kaline6

“ Frank H. Fleer looks an awful lot like Junior Seau. ” -jupiterhill

“ R.I.P ” -carthage44

“ I just don't see the fascination with putting current players on old format cards. But no one says you have to buy them and I didn't. ” -NJDevils

“ Not a bad card at all. SAYOWWWWWW, we miss you. ” -RoyalChief

“ Shouldn't Junior Seau be the highlighted name on the card and not Frank H. Fleer? Would love to have any/all Junior Seau cards, however! ” -bkklaos

“ Love the Retro stuff, but love the real vintage even more. What to say about this? 1997 Fleer, I think was the first attempt by a modern card company to make a retro set based on the early 1930s Goudey sets. Nice card all the way around, oh wow I just noticed the shadow Cool. ” -captkirk42

“ Junior was the only NFL Player that made opponents call his name out when he tackled them cause they say .....Junior Say-Ow!!!!!!! ” -Chargers Charlie

“ Has anyone created a confirmed CTE collection yet? Sad some of the greatest athletes have lost so much quality of life due to injuries sustained while playing. His 20 year career as a linebacker is amazing by any standard. ” -Mitch

“ I like this retro design, just not sure why it is 96-97..why not one or the other? maybe released in jan of 97? ” -mzentko

“ I'm sure everyone will say this, but this sure makes it look like Frank H. Fleer is the name of the pictured player. ” -wax_house

“ It's a shame what happenned to this man. It's simple proof the NFL only cares about making a buck. ” -deporcoruña

Set: 2010 Topps WWE Slam Attax Mayhem (Rate)

Card: #70 Kelly Kelly

“ Ah, one of the worst female wrestlers to ever grace the squared circle. Only got as far she did because she was easy on the eyes. As for the card, it's simply "meh." ” -ShoTime

“ No shirt on front, no stats on back. ” -dilemma19

“ Oh yeah! I miss Kelly Kelly. One of the worst wrestlers I've ever seen on TV. Yet I miss her. I really like the Slam Attax sets too. Sometimes they actually get some wrestlers that base Topps misses. ” -switzr1

“ Did Topps make Attax out of everything? ” -DarkSide830

“ I really dislike the WWE but the chicks they have, WOW! If you haven't seen the show "Total Divas" on the E channel, check it out! ” -carthage44

“ All of a sudden I have interest in the gaming cards... ” -SFC Temple

“ Oooh La La. I am so not mature. Kinda looks like our dog straddling her head. ” -Kaline6
